So I have just discovered Washi tape- these comments are from 2102...where have I been? haha.

I've just moved into a rental apartment with some serious bland furniture and I think I will have a go at using washi to update some pieces. I know everyone says its ok but I'm just wondering if anyone has had any problems getting the tape off ok? I don't want to go crazy then find I've ruined everything in a year when we have to move.

LOVE these ideas- great for apartment dwellers that have to leave the walls white as it can be removed. I'd love to do my desk like the table #4- I think the cost would be prohibitive- but it coyuld be dne with paint and then add washi tape accents- another project for my never ending (and rarely completed list. Thanks for posting.
